A Day in my Life as a Farmer!

By Anusha S.

 BEING A DAUGHTER OF A FARMER I FEEL HAPPY TO PUT MYSELF IN THE SHOES OF MY FATHER TO TAKE YOU ,THE PEOPLE WHO WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE HOURS OF A REGULAR DAY IN HIS LIFE.

USUALLY IN MOST OF THE VILLAGES THERE ARE DIFFERENT SHIFTS FOR ELECTRICTY IN A DAY, SO ITS ABOUT 5AM WHEN HE GOT UP AND HE TURNED ON THE WATER GATES TO GET HIS FIELD WELL IRRIGATED IN THE GIVEN SHIFT.THEN HE STARTED HIS COMMUNICATION WITH HIS PLANTS,THE WAY HE TALKS WITH CROPS IS EXACTLY SAME AS HE TALK WITH US BUT THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE LANGUAGE OF CROPS IS ONLY UNDERSTOOD BY HIM I MEANT TO SAY TO WHO CARES THEM IN EACH AND EVERY LEVEL WHICH IS A CRUCIAL WORK OF A FARMER RATHER THAN SAYING IT AS WORK FOR HIM ITS NOTHING BUT LOOKING AFTER HIS CHILDREN.

I CAPTURED MANY THINGS THAT DAY WHICH I FELT LIKE SHARING.FARMERS ARE MOST HAPPIEST PEOPLE WHEN THEY SEE THEIR CROPS IN A HEALTHY STATE.THIS HAPPINESS CAN BE ONLY SAVED BY THE REVOLUTION OF ORGANIC FARMING IN THE PLACE OF INORGANIC ONE.NOW THE QUESTION IS HOW?WHEN ONE APPLYS PLENTY OF FERTILISERS THE SOIL LOSES ITS QUALITIES LIKE ABSORBING WATER SO WHEN IT CAN’T,THE UNDERGROUND WATERLEVEL FALLS WHICH AFFECTS RAINFALL AND THIS IS THE MAJOR REASON FOR THE MOST OF THE SUICIDES IN THE COUNTRY.

FARMERS DO USE FERTILISERS WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING ITS COMPOSITION ISTEAD OF USING UNKNOWN HARMFUL ONE, ONE CAN PREPARE ORGANIC NUTRIENTS FOR THE PLANTS BY OWN BUT ITS LACKING IN NOWDAYS FARMERS DUE TO LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. FOR EXAMPLE ONE CAN USE THE COW DUNG AS A CROP NUTRIENT.THE GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES LIKE NCOF SHOULD EXTEND THEIR PROGRAMMES TO REACH EACH OF THE PEOPLE TO LET THEM KNOW HOW THE ORGANIC FARMING CAN TRANSFORM LIVES INTO BETTER ONE WITH THE GOOD PRODUCTIVITY WITH LITTLE INCOME.

EVERY FARMER SHOULD BE RESEARCHER OF HIS OWN FARM TO BE SUCCESSFUL. MOST OF THE PLACES LACK MARKETS THAT SHOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE.THE REGIONCROPS SHOULD BE GROWN IN THE PARTICULAR REGION SO THE DEMAND CAN BE CREATED.THE AGRICULTURE HAS MANY CAREER OPPORTUNITIES .IN THIS PANDEMIC THE AGRICULTURE PROVED ITSELF AS DYNAMIC AS EVERY JOB STOPPED BUT IT DIDN’T.THE BEST COMBINATION OF MAN AND TECHNLOGY CAN REACH THE SUMMIT OF AGRICULTURE. ALWAYS REMEMBER* IF AGRICULTURE FAILS EVERYTHING FAILS*.
